Diyode Magazine
« on: July 04, 2017, 10:38:06 pm »
Just been down to the shops for an early morning stroll and picked up the first issue (they had about ten on the stand)...

I'm going to have a good read today, would love to financially support another Electronics magazine here in Australia. I'll post some thoughts later.

Not easy, not hard, just need to be incentivised.

Still haven't had an in depth read but:

Pros or cons (you choose):

Glossy and shiny, good layout.
Broad range of electronics
Good beginner stuff..
- liked the "Hello World" in different languages
- electricity explained
Very Make magazine like but in a more electronics vein
Glossy and shiny
Lots of module stuff.. the reality is that's the hobby market now.
No deep electronic theory - not where this mag is aimed at, I'm presuming.
Density of print could be increased (words per page)
Good commercial advertisers support.

I'm thinking I will subscribe... the next twelve months will make or break the magazine, and it will be interesting to see how it evolves.

Received my second issue today.
Kinda dissapointed as it has been soaked in today's rain by Australia Post.
The magazine was not properly sealed in the plastic sleeve, which allowed rain to get inside the sleeve.

Some pages soaked, while others are pretty well stuck together so its ruined.  :(

I have sent an email to the Diyode help email address.
Will see how good their customer service is.
Hopefully they just send me a replacement as that is what I requested.

Well I got a reply from Rob at Diyode.
He apologised, and said a replacement would be sent out today, and he has also passed my photo onto their printing house due to the bag not being properly sealed during printing.

So a thumbs up for Diyode magazine from me regarding how they handled this issue.

Anyone have the digital version? I've been thinking of subscribing because I remember the green grass days of Electronics Australia and I'd like to support if its good quality.

Australia Post are idiots and boy could I tell some stories, I've told the postman on several occasions that there is more than sufficient room in our letterbox to accommodate anything he is likely to deliver yet he continues to leave stuff partially hanging out for anyone to take or for it to get wet unnecessarily, I'm pretty sure he now does it just out of spite but don't you worry people every dog has its day.   :D ;D >:D

At some point I will subscribe to the magazine, probably the online issue otherwise I can pick one up from Jaycar who for that little extra give a 12 month warranty with the edition, I will keep the receipt just in case.   ::) :P

I wish the publishers the best of luck but isn't it the wrong time to start a new paper magazine? Print based publications have been in decline for a long time, especially the technology genres.

It's a coin toss with posties nowadays, some of them need sorting out  >:(
give the dobermans some entertainment, jack his fart bike and off to Cashies to score some weekend spending money.. or trade for a used Fluke 87V or laptop

I gotta say though, our local postie is a top bloke   :-+   always on the ball,
stops for a chat and not shy to talk about which people and things that suck

These are the type of quality thinking people we need supplying services, they are not scared of work,
nor PC hesitant to use common sense and courtesy and do the right thing  !   :clap: :clap:

instead of useless ass flapping clipboard clowns unworthy as shark bait
